Sekou Nkrumah, one of the children of the late founder of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah has claimed that president of the republic, H.E Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo lied in the speech he delivered at the final funeral rites of the late former president Rawlings.
President Akufo-Addo, in his speech at the funeral ceremony which was well attended and was held at the Independence Square in Accra said he became close to the late Rawlings in 2012 after decades of them not seeing eye to eye.
“My visit to his Ridge residence in 2012 signified the easing of tensions between us, leading to a friendship that lasted for the better part of some eight years,” the president revealed in is speech.
However, Sekou Nkrumah sees no truth in what the president said to the thousands of mourners who were present to bid farewell to their ex leader.
According to Sekou, Akufo Addo was for a very long time close to Jerry John Rawlings and one of his close confidant who was also very active in during the era of the PNDC, Capt. Kojo Tsikata.
He further shot down the entire speech delivered by the president, saying it was not impressive.
“Nana Addo’s speech does not impress me at all! In fact he lied, I know for a fact that he was close to Kojo Tsikata and Rawlings way back!!!,” he wrote on his facebook wall.
